When using a Sub-Zero humidor in a Designer (formerly Integrated) Wine Storage unit, the control flashes a humidity packets replacement reminder, if active, about every 2 months. Time varies by ambient humidity.

  • Turn the humidor reminder on or off in the main options screen.
  • Models IW-18 and IW-24 do not support the humidor option. To disable the timer and prevent the message from appearing, see Designer Wine Storage Turn Off Humidor Option.
  • The reminder appears when the door is opened.
  • Touch 'snooze' on the display to snooze the alarm for 2 weeks, after which the reminder will appear again.

With the "Humidor Packet Replacement Reminder" message present, to reset the message:

  1. Replace the humidity packages with new 72% packets.
    • Humidity packets slide into the retainer inside the humidor, as shown in the image below.
    • Sub-Zero does not sell humidity packages separately.
    • Humidity packets can be purchased directly from or a local cigar store.
    • Refer to Humidor Humidity for more information.
    • See 30" Designer Wine Storage Humidor for installation instructions.
  2. Touch Reset on the control panel.
  3. The control shows, "Reset humidor?"
  4. Touch Yes to reset.
    • Touching No on this screen returns to the Humidor Packet Replacement Reminder screen.
    • If the humidor icon is turned off and then on again using the main options screen, the timer for the reminder is also reset.
